Guardian - Ed Miliband's offer to the young: join Labour for a penny

Ed Miliband, the Labour leader, today sought to woo the youth vote by offering membership for a penny to anyone under the age of 27.

Miliband said the "Christmas invitation" would secure young people a political voice as he launched the party's "Speak out for your generation" campaign.

I think the young have found a political voice of their own; on the streets. Quite what NuLab, the unashamed voice of plutocratic interests, could criticize about the results of the neoliberal solutions it advocated when in power is beyond me. When Milband has an economic policy that actually challenges this status quo he might find his party having more relevance, but at the moment they just look desperate in their attempt to insert themselves into the situation
